After creepily stalking out specialty stores and their associates since April, I was finally able to get my hands on my very own “it” bag. Mansur Gavriel. Totes (the large shoulder bag, not the “completely, absolutely” type), bucket bags and backpacks. They’re all made from gorgeous, warm Italian vegetable tanned leather that gets more beautiful with age. In glorious color waves. UGH, I just died.
Bag is so great – you can carry around a palm tree inside of it… weird background imaging…
I purchased the tote because of versatility and wearability – useful and a great everyday staple.
It’s a serious, high quality bag for literally a fraction of the cost of luxe designers. Obviously why everyone wants it. That’s why it sells out before it can be replenished on the shelves.
Black/Blu color with black exterior and blu interior ❤ Each bag also comes with a small leather pouch that can be attached with a snap closure. Great for storing keys, change, and small items.
MUST-HAVE. I want one in every style and color. Also – MUST. STOP. SHOPPING. Purchased this beauty through the P.S. Dept app!
Not that fanny packs were ever really in. And not that they’re ever even out – take a trip to Disney World and look at all the middle aged men wearing them… Quick – clean up your vomit and I’ll tell you all about the versatile, chic & easy to wear version of them.
Honestly while traveling or going out, a cross body has become a huge staple handbag in my wardrobe.
It’s a constant win because you don’t have to hold it – Hands free is always for me. I don’t want to carry more things that I have to in my hands because I’ll probably spill my green tea on myself & singe my hand or ruin my silk blouse.
Cross-bodies mean no pain – AKA it’s not weighing down your shoulder. It can’t even weigh that much because you can’t load it with every item from your bedroom like your usual daily bag for work.
It’s the chic girl’s version of the fanny pack. Which I have to say I would not hate AT ALL!!! If it was at a music festival. I was dressed in neon and listening to electronic music for hours on end. It was questionable but worth it. I’ve done music festivals with Marc Jacobs as well and it doesn’t end well.
